The most frequently requested cosmetic surgery procedure, Liposuction is the removal of excess fatty tissue to reshape the body and assist in fat loss in areas that are resistant to diet and exercise, targeting specific areas of the body to sculpt and define shape resulting in a more streamlined silhouette. The abdomen, hips, buttocks, inner and outer thighs, knees and double chin are the most popular areas for the liposuction Miami procedure. The Miami Institute's accredited surgical suites make recovery comfortable and convenient following liposuction in Miami.
"Dr Craft gave me back my waistline!"
Dr Craft offers SlimLipoTM, an advanced laser body sculpting system , which features fat "melting" laser wavelengths that gently liquefy fat. The liquefied fat is then permanently removed from the body, using a medical suction device, through a few tiny incisions.Unlike traditional liposuction, SlimLipoTM laser liposuction doesn't leave dents or dings. On the contrary, the SlimLipoTM laser heats the tissue which may tighten your skin, resulting in a smoothly contoured surface. In some cases, the SlimLipoTM laser body sculpting procedure can be completed in as little as an hour. The SlimLipoTM laser used in the SlimLipoTMprocedure is cleared by the United States of America Food and Drug Administration for laser-assisted lipolysis.
Many people seek liposuction because they want to improve their contour and remove fat from specific areas, including hips, buttocks, thighs, neck, arms, chest, and abdomen. The best candidate for this procedure is a physically healthy, normal weight person with firm, elastic skin, and with realistic goals and expectations. It is not designed as a treatment for obesity or weight reduction. Patients who fall into this category will need advice on diet and exercise before considering surgery.
During The Procedure
There may be a slight pinching and minimal discomfort when local anesthesia is administered. Because the SlimLipo body sculpting system uses precision laser technology, there's little to no "ripping" and "tearing" like in traditional liposuction. Most patients feel nothing but mild warmth during the process.
Generally, recovery time is very quick. Most patients experience little to no soreness and many even go to work the next day. A compression garment usually is worn on the treated area for a few weeks after surgery.
